    My mother is deceased, having died when I was 13 years old. Growing up without her, I didn’t get to experience what most women do in being able to have a relationship with her as an adult. Because of that, whenever someone tells me that I remind them of my mother, it is a positive attribute for me because it gives me a connection to her that I wouldn’t have otherwise and makes me happy that she is remembered by others.

      Thank you for sharing this, Susanne. Really interesting how we find unexpected ways to remain connected to our parents after they are gone.

    I was often told as a child that I would react to things just like my mother. As I have gone through therapy and discovered who I really am, I find that, as a first child, I had inherited/absorbed a lot of her ways of being in the world, which weren’t necessarily mine. I can now embrace who she is (well, I’m getting there!) and who I am as two separate souls who have been put on this earth together to teach and challenge each other in order to find as much joy as we possibly can in this life.

    I am often told that I’m just like my mother – form facial features and body to character. It used to drive me crazy as I’m not a fan of comparisons in general. But I do feel these similarities more with age. I love my mother dearly, she is a great person and a great friend of mine but I do realize that I have inherited a lot of the bad characteristics from her. For example she has a tendency to feel guilty all the time about everything and she puts others on guilt trips, she is impatient and gets offended easily. And so do I. As I know from experience – these reactions hurt other people, so I try very hard not to be like that. There are positive similarities too, of course.
    Also, she has a great body at 52 yrs and after 3 children. It gives me great hopes. 🙂

    I am nothing like my mother but very similar to my mom who raised me and I am grateful my mother opted not to raise me.
